Brett Michaels will not stop talking about his mishap at the Tony Awards! He just released a lengthy statement on is MySpace Celebrity blog.
Here are some HIGHlights:
On his appreciation:
"The fact is I was honored to be asked to perform at the event. The entire “Rock of Ages” production were awesome and even though I was completely out of my element I was really enjoying myself prior to my injury. In fact all involved at the awards show treated me good. "
On the Tony Organization reaction:
"However I must state I found it a little strange that the only statement released by the Tony organization was that I missed my mark and that I was completely fine. First, I thought, ‘what mark?’ as there was no official mark, just a retracting drum riser and an overhead prop being rapidly lowered which was out of my view. Second, I think it was slightly irresponsible for them to report that I was fine without full knowledge of my condition, when a doctor hadn’t even looked at me yet and I surely don’t remember any X-Ray machines backstage."
On missing his mark:
"Whether it was a miscommunication, missed cue or missed mark no matter what the situation was the prop should have been stopped or at least slowed for a few more seconds until I cleared the stage. I ever instructed that the piece was coming down and that I had very little time to get off the stage, otherwise believe me I would have stopped or at least ducked so as not to be knocked out at the Tonys. I was bummed that I did not get to see any of the acts perform during the Tonys as I have never seen a play on Broadway before, probably would have enjoyed it, and even more bummed that I did not get to attend the after parties, cuz rumor has it Anne Hathaway was going to be there and she is hot. "
"I would like to personally thank Bobby and C.C., Mark Hogue, Larry Morand and my crew along with Liza Minnelli, Mark Indelicato and Carole Propp for rushing to my dressing room to check on my condition."

He needs to let this go!!
Even if he wanted to sue, he discredits himself by drawing attention to Anne Hathaway's hotness in the middle of his statement.
Poor, Tony organization!
They probably had no idea that anyone would exit through the back of the stage as we have never seen anyone do that!
Watch everyone else!
Exit through the sides!!!!!!!
